Christmas in Surfers Paradise is truly the most wonderful time of the year. This year, Surfers Paradise beach and mall will be transformed to an Aussie summertime wonderland. Santa will be there dressed for the occasion in board shorts, carollers will be singing, and there might even be a chance to win a prize! (but only if you’ve been good).

Christmas in Surfers Paradise is running from 13th-24th of December and there’s fun planned for everyone. Kids will get a chance to meet Bugs Bunny and the whole family can snap a selfie with Santa at Cavill Mall. Experience Oz have built a giant Advent calendar for the occasion and are doing 12 days of giveaways!

Back by popular demand, Carols on the Beach will be held on the 23rd of December. This event is a highlight on our calendar, the only carols concert in Queensland that takes place on the sand; now that’s an Australian Christmas!

Looney Tunes characters will be on the beach for the carols event from 3-6pm. Then, Christmas classics will be performed by local musicians and the night will close with a firework display.

Our recommendation? Prepare a picnic in your Surfers Paradise self-contained apartment and bring it along with you. It’s a night you and your loved ones won’t forget!

Holiday Holiday has limited accommodation over the Christmas school holidays, you can check our availability here. Or, call our friendly reservations team and we will see what we have available for you and your family.
